White Pine White Gunk

Post  marc74 on Tue Aug 26, 2014 5:28 pm

just been out to attend to my white pine

i noticed lots of needles yellowing off and presume due to autumn approaching.
i plucked most of these out and decided i will put the pine in the shed for a few days as we have had non stop rain in Kent recently.


then i noticed this stuff on the  branches. an issue? a fungus? an insect, a water related problem?
it does seem to rub off

please advise

Looks like a critter to me.

Moving to Pests forum (will move it back if not a critter <g>)

Yes that's woolly aphids. Spray with Provado or neem oil, or remove with methylated spirits and q-tips. Repeat after 14 days.
Really check the spot where the needles are attached. They can be persistent buggers
